Since I do woodworking about every day and have to work on my porch and my bedroom, I decide I would build a nice little 10’x12’ shed to use as my very own workshop. I know what everyone is going to say, “you should make it bigger” or ” you are going to wish it was bigger.” Of course I would want it bigger, but due to the cost and me being only 18 and living at my parents house, I decided to make it 10’x12’. I designed the rough plans on Google SketchUp:
I designed it to have a 36” door in the front and two windows on the sides. The floor is going to be pressure treated 2×6 joist 16” O.C., the walls are going to be 2×4 studs 24” O.C., as well as the roof.
Yesterday I got enough lumber to do the floor, and stud the walls. It was enough to weigh down the bed of my sisters truck by a few inches:
I only got to work on it for a few hours today, but here is the progress I got with the floor:
Also, I am think of using T1-11 for siding. Anyone know of a cheaper option? I think vinyl siding is more expensive and more work but I’m not sure. Is there any other options?
